Part Number: DP83640T-EVK
I just received a new DP83640T Eval Board and can’t connect to it with the Analog LaunchPAD Ethernet Integrity Software Utility I downloaded from TI. I installed the software and USB driver on a Win7 laptop. I am getting the error “No attached ALP based USB boards were detected”.

I found a post that said this ALP Software Utility doesn’t work on Win7 so I installed it on WinXP. The Software Utility now sees my DP83640 Eval Board but give me the error “Could not instantiate class DP83640_Nano_GUI from the following GUI device”.

Works for me ok now on an WinXP PC.
I can read registers without error messages
Yes, I ran the ALPUSBDriver.exe program to install the drivers. It sees the Eval board but gives me the error “Could not instantiate class DP83640_Nano_GUI from the following GUI device”.
In reply to Alex Mueggenborg:
I was using the 1st one on the development board page. I was able to find a WinXP machine to install it on. I never tried the other one.
Yup. I got the boards in and came to the same conclusion as everyone else. WinXP is required with the ALP found on the dev board page. I had to dust off an old computer to get it working. I even went so far as to get in touch with Opal Kelly to see if they had an updated driver, but they bounced me back to TI.
This is a bit off topic, but since you seem to also be looking at this the same time I thought I would ask you a question that i just posted about not being able to get boards discovered using the EPLTestApp or PTPTestApp that came with the dev environment.
I believe that I have my test environment set up correctly.
-I'm on a WinXP.
-Python 2.4 appears to be executing correctly.
-I have VC++ 2008 Express installed
-I'm using National Analog LaunchPAD and I'm able to see my two boards and change register values.
However, when I run either EPLTestApp.exe or PTPTestApp.exe or testit.cmd in .\tools\python\EPLTest no boards are discovered. I have copied the _epl.dll and okFrontPanel.dll in with the EXE, but still only get a 'Scan Complete!' without anything found.
I'm sure I'm doing something dumb, but nothing else is obvious. Thanks.
